Thankful for the 9 pax we had this morning to hold me accountable! It was a struggle for me to get up, but glad I signed up to Q, so I would be forced to get there! 🙂
We started with a quick warm up, 15 jumping jacks, 20 (10 forward/10 backwards) arm circles, and 10 windmills. Then the ladder climbing began! This was our workout.
10 burpees,run half the parking lot
20 tricep dips, run half the parking lot
30 mountain climbers, run half the parking lot
40 push ups, run half the parking lot
50 squats, run half the parking lot
60 alternating lunges, run half the parking lot
70 sit ups (1/2 crunches, 1/2 full), run half the parking lot
80 side kicks (40 each side), run half the parking lot
90 punches,run half the parking lot
100 jumping jacks, run half the parking lot
*Had time to do 10 Burpees and run around the parking lot one more time*
Circle up, name-a-rama, Devo
In all these things we are more than conquerors
through him who loved us.
Some days life feels like a showdown with an awkward elementary school bully—the enemy of our hearts, the teller of the lies we’re tempted to believe. Perhaps if this battle were mine alone I might just let the bully keep on shoutin’.. But I don’t believe this battle is only about me.
It’s about all my sisters. It’s about all my daughters. It’s about every woman in this world. Because every time one of us wins, we all do. We silence the roar of darkness a little more. We make it a bit harder for that bully to try something on one of us again.
We will all have days when we’re white-hot mad we have to go another round. We will all have moments when we want to run right on home. We will all have seasons when it seems easier just to take it.
But that isn’t our destiny. We are tree-swingers and baby-rockers and mountain- movers. We are girls. We are women. We are daughters of Eve in a fallen world. This means we will never stop being under attack. But it also means we will never—Dear Jesus, may we never—stop fighting back.
Let’s be unexpected warriors, love ninjas, secret agents of grace in the kitchen and the boardrooms and by the swings on the playground.
